Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley—who is also a 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee as a member of the original and classic Kiss lineup—is set to release Space Invader, his first new solo album in five years, on eOne Music, June 24th, 2014. The album includes new original songs and a cover of Steve Miller’s “The Joker.”
“Life on Earth has been very good to me,” says Frehley, “and the body of work I’ve created over the years has withstood the test of time. Today, I see no obstacles before me, and my creativity has never been more fine tuned. Growing up in an alien world has enhanced my senses and allowed me to succeed where others would have failed. The best is yet to come!”
In addition, Frehley will participate in the 2014 Golden Gods Awards—originated and produced by Guitar Player’s sibling in NewBay Media, Revolver magazine. He will present the Dimebag Darrell “Best Guitarist”Award alongside label mate Zakk Wylde. The awards show will take place on April 23, 2014 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.
“It’s exciting to finally be part of the Golden Gods Awards, and an honor to be part of any Dimebag memorial award,” says Frehley. “He was a friend, and I know everyone misses him, as do I.”
